It's Called Balance

Life is about balance

The struggle can be so REAL when you battle with balance, self-love, and eating issues. Life is short, but that doesn't mean scarfing down pizza every night will make it better.

Self Love

"Work hard so you can eat something without feeling guilty." That is the mentality that causes people to fall back into unhealthy habits. I find that way of thinking pretty harmful. How about, "work hard so you can live life to the fullest, feel your best, shine out positivity, and eat vegan pizza and treats every once in a while because you are a real human being and that shit makes you happy?"

Vegan Veggies

Balance is something I work on daily, but I like to follow the 80/20 rule. What does this mean? It means you should treat your body to exercise, self-love, green juice, veggies, fruit, salads, etc. 80% of the time and enjoy fries and vegan pizza now and then.

Vegan Feminist

One thing that has helped me stick to this rule is finding new vegan recipes that feel like they should be a "cheat" meal but are incredibly healthy and delicious! My vegan mac & cheese recipe is super easy to make and will help you feel like there are fewer limitations on your diet. 

But seriously, cheat day shmeat day! Life is definitely too short to hate what you eat all week, and you look forward to that one day a week you can binge.

Let's try BALANCE by working on our mindsets and thinking about the way we FEEL after we eat certain foods. If it feels good, do it! Get to the place where you can indulge occasionally and not feel guilty afterwards. Coming from someone who has had eating issues, this takes TIME!

You may only live once, but pay attention to HOW you're living. Don't you want to FEEL amazing?! <3
